A New Staple: Snapper Crudo

I don’t know what it is lately, but we’ve been eating a lot of snapper.

And not of the deep fried variety, although that will never get old.

No, Brad has been buying whole snapper…

And creating the most delicious tiny bites of sashimi you could imagine.

You might remember this plate from my birthday celebration.  Snapper with kumquat, Serrano and mint.snapper crudoAnd then this one that appeared a few weeks later.  Snapper with english peas and mint.

Then, the birthday version was duplicated for the Coleman Lunch last week…snapper crudo snapper crudoAnd what a beautiful dish that was…

I will say – as a seafood lover – that I am very excited about this new addition to Brad’s repertoire.  I think I’d eat snapper sashimi every day if I could…
